Te Manawa

Project completed

Ongoing revitalisation and improvement of Rotorua's central city has been a Council priority for a number of years now. Council recognises that a vibrant and exciting inner city is a major factor in attracting people, activities, events and development to the district.

Creating Te Manawa and refreshing the old City Focus was one of the​ key issues within the inner city that retailers highlighted to Council back in October 2013.

One of Vision 2030’s priorities is to create a vibrant city heart.

The development of Te Manawa - The Heart of the City was completed in October 2017
